4:01 pm
his brother's thrown dering campaign. you can see those pictures coming out. meeting reports and some fans. this comes as jeb bush is about to speak at a new hampshire town hall. he will be speaking and taking questions at this town hall in just moments. the biggest one tonight is will he stay in the race? if not, the change in the polls and donor race will be seismic. once again, the attack of marco rubio failed. >> marco, when you signed up with this, it's a six-year term and you should be showing up and his campaign promised that's what would happen. brianna keilar is "outfront" tonight covering jeb bush in new hampshire. what is the campaign saying tonight after that debate
4:02 pm
performance? >> reporter: erin, they are insisting that their campaign has the funds, that they have the ground game. those folks on the ground in these key early states. what we saw today here in portsmouth, new hampshire, was a frustrated jeb bush bush and as you have republicans who have long wanted him to be the nominee, they have been supporting him, he's insisting that he still has the organization, the money and perhaps the most importantly the heart to see this campaign through. >> it's not on life support. we have the most organization. we're doing fine. >> jeb bush is back on the trail today trying to convince voters that his campaign is not on life support. >> it's not about the big personalities on stage. it's not about performance. it's about leadership. >> reporter: now, some political observers are concluding that bush's presidential prospects are doomed, even as he tries to project confidence he can make a comeback.
4:03 pm
>> there are two types of politicians. the talkers and the doers. i wish i could talk as well as some of the people on the stage, the big personalities on the stage. but i'm a doer. >> reporter: this, after critics and many republicans are panning his third debate performance. >> i'm running with heart. i'm not a performer. if they are looking for an entertainer in chief, i'm not the guy. >> reporter: bush, the once presumed front-runner, has raised $25 million for his campaign and is back by a super pac has dropped sharply in the polls. wednesday, bush stlug gruggled make a mark. >> when you signed up for this, this was a six-year term and you should be showing up to work. literally, what is it, like a french work week? you have three days where you have to show up? you can resign or let someone else take over the job. >> i don't remember you ever
4:04 pm
complaining about john mccain's position. >> reporter: what must have stumped even more coming from a man that he helped. >> the most centered leader i know, marco rubio. >> republicans back a jeb bush run and he really has money in his favor in the way that other candidates don't have. he insists that he's good to go for the long hall and a lot of them are saying he may not be popping right now in october or november but it really matters in january right before the iowa caucus, the new hampshire primary. at the same time, they also admit, erin, that he needs to have a moment, a big moment that resonates and have a good debate performance here and really in the near future. >> brianna, thank you very much for that. and now, mark preston. what are your sources telling you about the future of jeb
4:05 pm
bush's campaign tonight? >> i spoke to one of the top advisers and the conversation is that it's tok particular right now amongst national reporters but his adviser says and rightfully so, we saw jeb bush in new hampshire today but the adviser tells many he that they need to refocus the campaign. they need to grind it out and do need to do better in the upcoming debate. and with the bush campaign, who thought jeb bush was going to walk away with the nomination. this republican told me a short time ago that this is the first time i think that jeb bush may not actually win the gop nomination. >> a lot of people asking so many questions. thank you very much. joining me is a jeb bush supporter. good to have both of you.
4:06 pm
rick, let me start with you. george w. bush coming to the rescue tonight trying to moments ago reach with donors. here he is. >> thank you. god bless you. >> thank you. >> don't put that on ebay. >> all right. a light moment. he's signing autographs. saying don't put this on ebay. the question is, though, he's immensely popular, nearly 90% of the electorate have a popular opinion of him. can he save jeb bush right now? >> there is a sense right now in the commentary that's probably a little too panicked. i think jeb has not been enough panicked in the last few weeks. i think w is a very popular figure and great president and republicans do love him. he can certainly help keep the fuel in the tank going forward
4:07 pm
by helping raise some of those hard dollars on the campaign side. >> the reviews for bush are grim and "the tampa bay times" said it was the beginning of the times and republican consultants say the campaign is on life support. you heard mark preston say that it's toxic. is it time for him to drop out as so many are now openly discussing? >> actually, that's the suggestion that is ridiculous. to believe that last night one of many debates was in any way dispositive or game changing, you have to, one, want to believe it about jeb bush and, two, you have to ignore the evidence with a bunch of yeah buts. you could say the debates matter all that much, carly fiorina would have been at center stage last night.
4:08 pm
yeah, but. but if you said, well, poor performance, then you say, well, then carson wouldn't even be on the stage. yeah, but. sharp exchanges like jeb had with marco that didn't work out. if they were fatal to your campaign, trump would be out of the race. so this is just a lot of talk because we have to talk after these debates but it's not going to change the course of the race. blocking and tackling is going to change the course of the race. >> rick, do you think this will change the course of the race? yes, the media obviously has an opinion how this went and didn't go well for jeb bush and it's not just the media. his own campaign manager was banging on the production door. that seems like a rather panicked move. >> well, look, i think that -- as max said correctly, no single incident is going to be dispositive in this campaign.
4:09 pm
progress and sort of reorientation on how he can win in this current political environment and needs to be showing a consistent progress over time if the donors are going to maintain confidence in him. >> that moment with marco rubio, when it happened, i was walking into the kitchen briefly and stopped dead in my tracks. it was painful to watch it. because bush has been his mentor, his friend, it was hard to watch it. let me just play for you why. >> it's nice to see a young man passionate about these foundational beliefs and marco rubio speaks better than anybody i've ever met about these things. >> marco would bring incredible energy. he's the most articulate speaker for conservative principles in america today and he's my friend. >> i have special place in my heart for him. it's hard to describe the pride i feel for his incredible
4:10 pm
success and. >> it came off as either over prepared or desperate. obviously you're backing bush. you do think that didn't work? >> yeah. i would agree with that. it was poorly conceived and poorly executed. that moment will come but last night was too early. my feeling is at the end of the day this will shake out with there being a champion of the republican party. looks like said cruz and mainstream wing of the republican party. one day the two of them will have to post up but not when there's 11 candidates. so i think that they need to be more patient and wait for the right moment. >> so rick, next debate, less than two weeks away. little time to prepare.
4:11 pm
how significant does that mean it is? especially if you're jeb bush? you know you have failed and now all of a sudden the stakes are even higher. that often is not a situation where people are successful. >> well, i think that the pressure of debates in quick succession is something that they have to become accustomed to and jeb is extraordinarily bright and i think you are going to see some more sparks. as max says, you know, you don't flag your ambush ahead of time for your opponent. and i think that's what happened here. the jeb folks put out that they were going to raise the stakes. marco was completely ready for it. it's something they can't afford to do that, that particular mistake again. >> thanks very much rick mack for your time. "outfront," marco rubio say he pounced jeb bush. with solid debate performances and rising poll numbers is marco
4:12 pm
rubio for real? plus, donald trump claiming victory in last night's debate. will that be enough to push his poll numbers back over ben carson? and a deadly showdown. an "outfront" exclusive at this hour. but it is not the device that is mobile, it is you.

4:15 pm
you're looking live right now at pictures out of new hampshire. jeb bush is holding a town hall with voters. we're watching to see if he continues his attack on marco rubio and what questions voters asked him. strongest numbers of the night. he fired back at bush's criticism. does rubio have what it takes to last in the spotlight? donald trump and ben carson.
4:16 pm
suzanne malveaux is "outfront.." >> reporter: marco rubio setting the third gop debate on fire leading the media, hillary clinton and even his former mentor now rival jeb bush scorched. >> my campaign is going to be about the future of america. it's not going to be about attacking anyone else on this stage. >> reporter: his performance widely seen as a win that could be his breakout moment. >> i think he appeals to everybody on all sides of the spectrum. you know, there is something maybe kennedy-esque. he's a young, dynamic guy. he has an inspirational story. he makes you feel good about voting for marco rubio and good about the country in the same way that obama did for a lot of people. >> reporter: his father, a bartender and mother a hotel
4:17 pm
maid, he has four children. he ran for city commissioner at age 26 and received a $50 donation from none other than jeb bush. as the years passed, the former florida governor became rubio's close friend and mentor when he became statehouse speaker. >> now i'm actually on c-span. so it's good. >> reporter: but his political stock is on the rise but faces hurdles. missing senate votes and committee hearings. >> let me say, i read that he had tore yell today with great amusement. it's actually evident of the bias that exists today. >> reporter: and then his personal finances which rubio was also pressed on during last night's debate. >> senator rubio, you yourself have said that you've had issues. you have a lack of bookkeeping skills and accidently intermingled campaign money with personal money and liquidated a
4:18 pm
$68,000 retirement fund, something that caused you thousands of dollars in taxes and penalties. it raises the question whether you have the majority and wisdom to lead this $17 trillion economy. what do you say? >> you listed attacks from my political opponents. >> finally, there are the obama comparisons, his lack of experience. his ability to tap into the anger of the gop base while at the same time is presenting himself as hopeful and optimistic. erin? >> suzanne, thank you very much. "outfront" now, republican strategist and former chief of staff senator mitch mcconnell, josh holmes, and van jones. marco rubio is 44 years old, a first-term senator. is he ready, really ready to be president? >> yeah. you know, i think that's kind of
4:19 pm
an interesting attack. if you look at, for example, barack obama in 2008, his experience at that point makes marco rubio look like an original signer of the declaration of independence, by contrast. >> they were both first-term senators. >> but he was a speaker of house in florida which is not an insignificant amount of experience and you look at the stage on wednesday night, look at the front-runners. donald trump, ben carson, ted cruz. marco has more experience than all of those guys. it's an attack that's been tried time and time again over the course of history and it doesn't really stick all that well. >> van? >> well, listen, he's got enough experience to run for the office. i think the problem is he presents himself now as like this poor kid, the bartender's kid, sure, i've made his steaks
4:20 pm
but i'm a poor kid. it's so easy to start punching back. the reality is, he had almost a million dollar book deal on the table. he's making $300,000 a year. he commingled money with his campaign and got fined. his wife was involved. you can't do this boy scout thing over and over again. >> what do you say on the issues of finance, the questions that becky raised, commingling the campaign money, using money from his book deal for purchases, whether it be a boat or a car. a lot of people can relate to that but it raises questions for some about his readiness, his wisdom, his discipline. >> i think if selling books was a crime, we wouldn't have any presidential candidates at all. but the issue where senator rubio, best i can tell, the attack was that he bought a fishing boat. most americans kind of find refreshing that they've got somebody whose finances they can
4:21 pm
relate to. if they wanted to only vote for a millionaire, they have a heck of an opportunity to do that. >> people may be able to relate to him but will they want someone who has challenges paying their bills like they do in the oval office? >> it's going to be tough. i agree that he is relatable on this point. a lot of people in america are going to say, look, i've had financial troubles after the bush recession. i've had problems. but the question -- he's got to deal with the money -- how it impacts the rest of his life. for instance, he has a 1 billionaire backer. the problem with trump he says no one can buy me. with rubio, he's more relatable
4:22 pm
but the money question will keep comi coming up for him. the bad side is, you don't handle money well, you're too close to a couple of key billionaires and, i'm telling you, i knew the moment was coming that he was going to break out. he's unbelievably talented. but you can oversell yourself on what a boy scout is and every time the answer can't be, i'm going to attack the media. that's going to wear thin very quickly. this guy is unbelievably talented but he's got to be careful. >> josh, i'll give you a quick, final word. he's young looking so it's refreshing but he does have a baby face. >> yeah. no. i think that's why we're seeing a lot of attacks about inexperience and relative usefulness. he's the same age as ted cruz and we're not talking about that and within the same ballpark as
4:23 pm
obama when he was elected. he looks young and frankly he's pretty relatable to americans looking for youthful exuberance. >> thanks very much to you, both youthful and exuberant. and terrifying video. this plane caught fire just as it was about to take off with 101 people on board. the crew evacuated. some passengers down the wrong side of the fiery wreck. we're going to go live. big day? ah, the usual. moved some new cars. hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on.

tonight, donald trump is touting his debate performance. >> so who saw the debate last night? and who won the debate? >> you did! >> we did well. i mean, i think there were a few people that really did well last night. and we were given good credit. it's hard to get credit from the press.
4:28 pm
when you get credit from the press, you know you really did well because boy do they not want to do it. >> sara murray is "outfront" where the trump rally was held. sara, hearing a little bit about what trump had to say, what else >> reporter: well, no surprise donald trump believes that donald trump won the debate last night. that's not what the immediate reaction or the reviews were. a lot of people felt like last night was actually a breakout moment for senator marco rubio. even for senator ted cruz out further in the wings of the debate stage. what was interesting was watching trump navigate that today. he was actually very complementary and talking about senator rubio's performance on stage saying that the senator did a great job navigating tough questions. a little bit of a friendlier donald trump than we are used to seeing. >> to that point, lately it's been going aggressively over ben carson. i believe where you are today, it was kind words for ben carson. >> reporter: there were kind words for ben carson.
4:29 pm
trump started joking when an audience member asked who will be his vp. a number of people screamed out carson and trump was saying, look, you saw how well we were winking at each other and chatting at each other. he's been tough on carson in the past week, ever since the polls are showing that carson has been leading in iowa. a poll showed carson leading nationwide. when trump walked into this room, a lot of people also liked carson as well as himself. he played it safer tonight and that's what you've got to do if you're competing to win over the same pool of voters. >> thank you very much, sara murray, live from sparks, nevada, where trump appeared before a trump-like audience. thousands were there. a ben carson adviser joins me now and jeff lord, served as political director for president reagan. now, both of your candidates, gentlemen, as you know, were taking hits and all the talk is
4:30 pm
about marco rubio. jeff, let me start with you. donald trump thinks he did well. the reviews from the conservative press, though, the conservative press -- i want to make that point -- are not that way, the national review. it's no longer the trump show, "the wall street journal." trump gets over shadowed. did he need to do more last night, jeff? >> i hate to say this about my bretheren but i think there's a sort of predisposition at the national review to knock him to begin with. i thought he did perfectly fine. the attention of marco rubio, that comes because of the fight that jeb bush tried to pick with him and got smacked. so i understand that. but i do think that donald did very well here in all of this. you know, while we're on the subject of fights and i know you have armstrong there, dr. carson, who is a lovely guy, says that he doesn't want to get down in the mud pit, he doesn't fight, this is a bit of a
4:31 pm
paradox, i think, because one of the criticisms of mitt romney and john mccain by republicans and other republican moderate presidential candidates over the year is that they don't fight back. mitt romney, who was a good soul and upstanding family man and all of this, was portrayed as a responsible for murderng a steel worker's wife in an ad because they didn't give her health care, they say aproesh sho atrocious things. if dr. carson were to be the nominee, let's just be honest here, hillary clinton and these folks are going to come at him hammer and tong and saying he doesn't want to get into the mud pit isn't going to cut it. >> what do you say to that? >> hello, jeffrey. listen, there's a difference in fighting against your republican
4:32 pm
brothers, the harshness of the media, the public, as much as they fight out in the public and with the media, the last thing dr. carson wants to do is fight with them and argue with them on stage. dr. carson has shown where he's defended his position about muslim and guns and the president. whether it was the national prayer breakfast which launched a thousand ships for him, he stood up to the president and talked about what he believed about affordable care. it all depends on where you pick the fight. we don't want to fight with mr. trump or the republicans but are willing to fight with everybody else who doesn't stand for the great interest of the united states that we all love so dearly. >> mr. armstrong, i want to ask you about -- >> that sounds like a good vice president to me. >> armstrong, i've got to ask you about dr. carson's most memorable moments last night, the question about the nutritional supplement account,
4:33 pm
claiming that it can kill things from down syndrome's. ben carson denied that relationship in the debate. here's what he said. >> that is total propaganda. do i take the product? yes. i think it's a good product. >> to be fair, you were on the home page with a logo over your shoulder. >> it somebody put me on the home page, they did it without my permission. >> let me play for you the video which includes dr. carson. >> the wonderful thing about a company like manitech, when god made us, he gave us the right fuel. >> why would dr. carson deny a relationship there? >> because it's the truth. >> how is it the truth. he likes the products, he's in a
4:34 pm
promotional video about the product. >> that was in missouri. dr. carson just launched his book, "america the beautiful" and dr. carson was giving a speech in missouri through the washington speaker's bureau and it just so happened that they were one of the sponsors of the event and they wanted him to promote the product and dr. carson only talked about his personal story and talked about other things. he did not talk about manitech and when he was coming off the stage, the ceo, sam caster, put a grab on him and said you didn't mention it we want you to be part of it and can you do a video, say something on the video? the problem is sam was trying to coach him about what to say and dr. carson was not comfortable with it and said what he said. we saw it posted on youtube and edited dr. carson's video.
4:35 pm
they edited dr. carson's video and manipulated it to make it seem as though he was endorsing the product. >> is dr. carson going to sue them? what is he going to do about it? >> listen, this is a speaking engagement. dr. carson came on the stage. he decided to go and do the video based it on the orphanage in africa. >> i appreciate you talking about that and it's good to have you with us. "outfront" next, an exclusive report between heavily armed gunmen in an american strip mall and this boeing 767 leaking fuel when the pilot frantically calmed the tower. and can you explain why you recommend synthetic over cedar?

you know, two dozen people are injured, a boeing 767 bursting into flames on the
4:40 pm
runway in ft. lauderdale catching fire before the plane was set to take off. >> dynamic, left engine looks like it's leaking a lot of -- i don't know if it's fuel but leaking out of the left engine. >> engine on fire! engine on fire. >> and tonight, the ntsb is on the ground trying to figure out what went so horribly wrong. i'm on the phone with mike and thank you for being with us. i know you saw this jet catch fire and we're going to look at the video because this is video that you filmed while sitting on the plane nearby. what did you see? >> yeah. so it was kind of crazy. we were on the taxiway about to take off and we were right behind the plane that caught fire. we heard a couple screams on the plane, looked out the window and saw billows of smoke coming from the left side of the plane. >> and did you see the flames? did you see the fuel leaking? it sounds like you were fairly close there from the pictures you took.
4:41 pm
>> yeah. we were right behind the plane. what we saw was tons of smoke and we saw people evacuating from the right side of the plane. that's what we were focused on. we were very nervous, of course, but also looking onward and making sure that everybody was able to get off the plane. i did see ems and fire response come very, very quickly and start to spray down the left side of the plane with water. >> and from what you were seeing, obviously you had a very good visual there. so how fast was the plane going and did you have any warning whatsoever or did it suddenly just explode? >> you know, i'm not really sure how fast it was going. we were getting ready to take off ourselves and we were following this plane on the runway and then all of a sudden after the screams on the plane we looked out the window and just saw the smoke pummeling out and saw the passengers start to evacuate on the ride side. >> how did you see the passengers getting off? did they have the slides or how did that go, from what you could
4:42 pm
see? >> you know, what we were looking at, there was some sort of mechanism or a ramp that the passengers were exiting from the left side. we couldn't even tell if it was flames. if there were fire there because it was so much black smoke coming from the engine on that left side. >> all right. mike, thank you very much. i'm glad you got safely to your destination. thanks for coming "outfront." video that would you not see from anywhere else. nine left dead in suburban strip mall right here in the united states. we have an "outfront" exclusive report. and on a lighter note, jeanne moos with george clooney adding to their family. to your rheumatologist about a biologic... this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira giving me new perspective. doctors have been prescribing humira for ten years.
